Urueye, who was serving as a doctor at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), was killed by suspected robbers in front of the hospital at Idi Araba, Lagos, on Thursday night.
Urueye was said to have been stabbed to death by the hoodlums, and Nigerians aren’t having any of it — They have taken to Twitter to lend their voices, asking government to wake up to its number one task — protect lives and properties.

Nigeria yet loses another star!
How many lives have to go before we get it right?
A young medical doctor, murdered around the hospital environs!

6 years + 6 months + nearly if not over 2 years of ASUU strike + working without pay for months as a HO? Stephen deserved a great life! #JusticeForStephen

He did not lose his life, his life was stolen from him… Think about it, they're 2 different things
It could have been anyone😓#JusticeforStephen

He just graduated…last year
Started work….this year
He was a young doctor, full of life
But some people thought otherwise….robbed him, stabbed him and killed him.

A hospital in an environment of high crime rate. Yet the govt has done nothing to tighten security
Now in one night a young promising Dr, only son, who just convocated on Wednesday, stabbed to death by 9pm AT LUTH GATE + Male and Female hostels robbed!

Lots of people especially students and LUTH staff have been robbed on that road. It’s sad that this young colleague had to lose his life over a situation that was entirely preventable.
May the Lord Almighty grant his family the fortitude to bear this loss. #JusticeForStephen

He dedicated his life to saving the lives of others. Only to have his snatched by a bunch of miscreants. How can we save lives when we are not even safe??? This is madness! #JusticeForStephen pic.twitter.com/2Q6y5xt5y1
